I would really love to see a Bariatric Surgery topic - where people who have undergone or will undergo such surgery can give their advice and experiences and share recipes for the diet lifestyle change that follows. There are many people, especially Americans (including me), who can relate to this topic. Plus, there are many types and variations of surgeries that fall under this category.
The number of weight-loss procedures has jumped, from 16,000 in the early 1990s to 180,000 in 2005, according to the American Society for Bariatric Surgery. In 2008, an estimated 220,000 bariatric surgeries were performed in the U.S.
I am looking forward to exploring this topic with others. Thanks for your consideration!
